Testing Thai translation applications

Here is a link to the Thai and English voice samples I’ve used as a baseline for the overall testing process.

In this video, I spend some time going through the testing process I’ve used to evaluate the two most common applications I use in dealing with the Thai spoken language. I must admit, I do struggle a bit with learning the Thai language but that probably stems from my analytical approach with day to day life. I am, after all, an engineer and a computer systems engineer to be more specific, so everything I do needs to have some logical process. Languages are certainly not logical and when it comes to the Thai language, it can be quite confusing.
The tests I’ve done today are between the default Google Translator app which should be installed on all Android OS phones. The link here will take you to the Google Play store if you don’t have it

The second app I’ve referred to is a locally made translation app which has a clean and easy to use interface, but unfortunately, the application is only in Thai.

Overall, the initial scores came out as
Google Translate – Thai>English = 26, English>Thai = 30 and Ease of use = 7
แปลเสียง ไทย-อังกฤษ – Thai>English = 26, English>Thai = 32 and Ease of use = 6
